Launching Of The SS France
Two shots of spectators watching a model of the SS France and a marching band parade down a street. Two shots of rails being sprayed in preparation for a ship's launch. An aerial shot of the SS France in its berth. Spectators arrive and amass for the launch. Shots of shoring spars being tapped away from the bottom of the hull. Shot of a bishop giving a benediction for the ship. A bottle of champagne is broken against the bow, signaling the ship's christening. Several shots of the ship sliding into the water. Final shot of what narrator calls the "longest liner ever built by man" moving through harbor.
